Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center offers the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAP-BAND® or REALIZE™ Band) procedure – a surgical option that controls the amount of food that can be consumed at one time.

During the operation, a hollow silicone band is placed around the top of the stomach, creating a small pouch and narrow passageway. The band is then inflated with a saline solution. When the patient eats, food enters the pouch and is slowly emptied into the stomach via the narrowed passageway. The band can be adjusted by surgeons, as needed. Patients considering this procedure are carefully screened for dietary habits and preferences, as well as pre-existing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
